About Riva del Garda
Riva Del Garda is a resort city in Northern Italy on the shores of Lake Garda. Its strong winds and mountainous lakeside location make it a popular destination for sports such as windsurfing, hiking, mountain climbing, sailing and boating. Riva Del Garda’s many waterfalls, parks, caves, cliffs and sweeping vistas make for picturesque opportunities to enjoy nature.
Riva Del Garda was once a part of Austria, giving it a distinct culture and vibe different from the southern cities that also surround Lake Garda. History comes alive here in this little village, with many museums, archeological sites and ancient churches displaying their architecture and culture dating back to medieval times.
Many expats live here year-round, and Riva Del Garda is a popular destination for Italians to own a summer home. Riva Del Garda has a reputation for being a lively, cheery and friendly town, while still remaining safe and family-friendly.
